Michaela Kocianova in French Revue Des Modes Fall 2009
Fashion and beauty musings with a dose of my life thrown in.
I’m really lazy when it comes to posting pics from my camera. And that means not getting around to posting the last nail ideas from the previous couple months until now. hahaha well here it is. [And the reason the pics from August and September were so shitty is because I forgot that I had the macro on my camera turned off so it wasn’t taking close range shots.]
This is beautiful. I normally don’t like nude editorials but Natasha Poly is gorgeous in it, making it tasteful and natural. There is just something so comfortable about her posing. And this is artistry; not porn or nudity just for the sake of nudity.

Doesn’t she remind you of someone? A certain newly minted actress perhaps? She looks awfully similar to a certain Lily Cole (the red hair! that baby face!), but she’s a newbie on the block I think. And she has an adorable gap. So she’s like a hybrid of Lily Cole and Lara Stone. She is Lindsay Wixson and hopefully she has the success of Lily and Lara. But she’s just adorable, not to mention seems remarkably good at finding the light and switching up poses to keep things interesting.
Oh! I just realized that she had opened for Prada and closed Miu Miu for Spring/Summer 2010. How’s that for a ringing endorsement?

Coco Rocha in Numero 107 October 2009, Riviera
Again, I give you my favorite model. She’s amazing, despite always having her mouth open in shots. She always comes off strong and beautiful, dominating the shot without overwhelming the viewer. The mark of a good model is the ability to capture the viewer and to make us see beyond the pretty face. Also, who hasn’t seen her latest ad campaign for good friend Zac Posen? Simply gorgeous.
Hmm it’s been a while since I’ve posted an editorial; I’ve been remiss. However, I have been rather busy as of late with uni and all that jazz. Hopefully it dies down a little so I can get back to properly blogging as opposed to surreptitiously blogging in moments of procrastination in between exams.
